Today the day’s news has undoubtedly been starring Xiaomi, who has presented not one or two, but up to 3 new phones in the form of Xiaomi Mi 8 , Xiaomi Mi 8 SE Y Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition . The latter is the one that has taken much of the attention especially for that c transparent shell that exposes all the components of the mobile phone. Or at least that would seem at first.
The most striking, apart from the sensor under the screen that presumes the phone (and we hope it is not false either), is the transparent case of the mobile phone that reminds us of old Nokia phones that housed a transparent back panel that allowed to see the “guts”. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition has boasted from the first moment that this design allows you to enjoy a “look” never before seen in a top of the range.
However, it seems that all that glitters is not gold and that this transparent case of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition is really … a sticker
The first clues that something did not fit in the components of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition Da Chengming Alpert on Twitter, who doubts that the actual layout of the components of the mobile phone is what we are seeing in the photos.
Good luck to people who believe # XiaomiMi8 Explore edition has a “transparent” back. Truth: it’s a sticker.

Soon we have seen how companies like ITHOME (a technological medium of China) claimed that the Transparent back of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer does not show the motherboard or the actual components of the phone, giving rise to numerous theories about what Xiaomi has done on his phone starring, in addition, for 8 GB of RAM.
If we look at the definition of the phone on the official Xiaomi website, we read that “The transparent component of Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer it does not show one by one with the real components located inside the phone ” . However this does not seem to have explained very well what happens on the martphone so Xiaomi Have you been forced to make an explanatory statement? to The Verge on the controversial back cover of the mobile.
The c Transparent case of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition It is made of glass and, indeed, it is transparent, and there is no sticker with a false image on it. The parts seen in the upper rear half, for example, are parts of the actual base plate.
Actually, the back cover of the mobile phone, as can be seen in the image that we have under these lines, is really transparent. What happens is that it does not show the components of the phone that it hides in its guts 100%. It seems that the brand mixes a real vision of the base plate of the phone with a silkscreen to give a more neat appearance to the whole. Or do we know many electronic components that appear translated into perfect English, as we see in this photo?
It is still not entirely clear but it is expected that Xiaomi will return to pronounce in the next hours.
